Retired FBI profiler Terry McCaleb (Eastwood), who has recently had a heart transplant, is hired by Graciela Rivers (De Jesus), to investigate the death of her sister, Gloria, who happens to have given McCaleb his heart. On the case, he soon deducts that the killer, who staged the murder to look like a random robbery, may actually be a serial killer Terry was trailing for years in the FBI. Can the elderly and feeble McCaleb, who had intended to spend his retirement living on his boat in the Los Angeles harbor, and who can't drive, and has to nap regularly, muster up the endurance to find the killer?


Pretty obvious story, but still watchable, 20 January 2004 Author: Bernhard Ratka (Bernie-28) from Vienna, Austria I didn't know a thing about this movie before I saw it. I found it to be an interesting story for the first 45 minutes. Then everything became pretty obvious. They could have done better. But it was still entertaining. All in all: It started out good, but became average closer to the end. (6 out of 10)
